PROS would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the city of Calgary is the traditional territory of the peoples of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot First Nation tribes of Siksika, the Piikuni, the Kainai, the Stoney Nakoda First Nations tribes of Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley and the Tsuut’ina.
Calgary, Alberta is the largest city in the western Canadian province of Alberta. The city of Calgary is situated on the Bow River in southern Alberta, about 220 km north of the American border at the meeting point of the Western prairies and mountain foothills. It is the financial center of western Canada, based on its key role in the development of the region’s oil and gas industry. Calgary offers all the energy of a large metropolitan city with the warm and welcoming spirit of a connected community. Calgary was ranked the world’s third most livable city by Economist Intelligence Unit (2022). A city with diverse communities and endless opportunities, Calgary is a city that may surprise you.
Located approximately 17 kilometers (11 mi) northeast of downtown. Built in the late 1930s, the site has since grown to house four runways, two terminal buildings with five concourses for passengers, warehouses for cargo handling, and other infrastructure. If you are a FMTY PRO or traveling to Calgary via air travel, this will be your arrival destination.
